Use PhotoShop filters in PSP?

Postby kimmetta » Fri Jul 04, 2003 10:36 pm

I am trying to use Adobe PhotoShop filters (.8BF) in PaintShop Pro 7.0, but with no success.

Are they not compatible?

Clarification

It's me again...I just thought I should clarify...I am trying to export the filters which come with PhotoShop for use in PaintShop Pro. Although the file format is compatible, something is clearly missing from the process. Any ideas?

From Version 6 of Photoshop on you can't use its plugins in other applications. A small excetion is e.g. Plugin Commander Pro.

So you need the Photosop 5.0 versions of these plugins...

Harald,

Can you explain this further? In my experience, the Win32 plugin interface has not changed through Photoshop 7.0. Or is PSP less compatible in its handling of, e.g., v6.0 parameter block fields? What have I overlooked? Is there more info out there on compatibility?

Adobe has taken some steps to prevent that the plugins delivered with Photoshop 6 and 7 can be used in other company's applications. These plugins use some features that are not documented in the Photoshop SDK and demand that some Adobe DLLs are alreadey loaded.
